Seascapes

When you really ‘look’ at the ocean and all that is in and around it you become aware of the many intricacies of the ecology surrounding all life on the reef, in the sand , the sky, and the ocean itself. Small and larger rock pools at low tide are homes to many organisms, molluscs, seaweeds, octopus and crabs. BAILER 06

Tiny soldier crabs move in swathes across the sandbars at low tide trying to evade the  seagulls as they select their victim. The colours mingle across the sand and form amazing patterns.

    As an artist, it seems to be a necessity when trying to portray anything. Do you find that too?
